Inspired by former U.S. Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan's acknowledgment that he'd found a flaw in his model of how the world worked, 'The Flaw' attempts to explain the underlying causes of the financial crisis in more depth than any documentary to date. The film tells the story of the credit bubble that caused the financial crash, and presents an original and compelling account of the toxic combination of forces that nearly destroyed the world economy.

This is a 2010 documentary about the great financial meltdown.
The film tells the story of the credit bubble that caused the financial crash through interviews with some of the world's leading economists as well as Wall Street insiders and victims.
More topical than ever, it also presents an original and compelling account of the toxic combination of forces that nearly destroyed the world economy, demonstrating how excessive income inequality leads to economic instability.
It is an inspirational and profoundly thought-provoking documentary.

Here's another excellent hindsight-filled Economic Disaster Film. But this one gives historic perspective, and fresh insight into how declining (real) wages, and widening income difference, was a driving modality behind the latest bubble-to-burst nightmare. Worth seeing.
